Electrical power plays an essential role in the development of a nation. A reliable and economic supply of electrical power is essential for the effective and productive operation of Singapore’s industries. This can only be achieved by having an efficient and well-planned power system operated by skilful operators. This demands engineers with the knowledge in power system engineering.
Participants are required to bring computer notebook when attending lessons, as you may need it to access the e-learning materials, writing reports, etc.
This course aims to upgrade the knowledge and skills of practising engineers and technologists involved in the operation, planning, design, maintenance, protection, control and management of power systems. Students will also learn about computer applications and the use of computer systems for the analysis, protection, control, planning and utilisation of electrical power.
This course is catered for practising engineers and technologists involved in the operation, planning, design, maintenance, protection, control and management of power systems in the mechanical & electrical consultancy, facility maintenance, plant operation, electrical equipment and construction industries.
